Elijah saying "cheese" for the camera. He knows the camera means he should say "cheese" but for some reason when he says cheese it doesn't really look like he is smiling; it looks like he is talking! (Since of course, he is!) Whoever made up that "say cheese" thing was an idiot! It doesn't work at all unless you tell them "say cheese and FREEZE like that!"
This is what happens when Ian tries to put the boys in the tub at night. They all play around on mommy and daddy's bed until the tub is full of water. The boys think it is hilarious to run around with their T-shirts on their heads when they are taking their clothes off for the bath!
Reading daddy's book together on a Saturday morning.
This is the boys favorite Waco zoo activity...playing in the water! We have season passes so some days we just go in our swimsuits and water socks to play in the fountains. This time MiMi joined in on the action. Joaquin loves to slap the water around with his hands, while Elijah loves to stop out the fountains.
Every year after the cotton harvest, my parents little town of Moody, TX, has a Cotton Festival. There is a parade in the morning and lots of booths and play areas set up in the downtown all day. The kids dance around to the live music, ride pony's, bounce in the bounce houses, smack each other over the head with confetti eggs and the like while the parents buy small town cookbooks, welded art pieces, homemade candles and such. It is always such a fun day. Mom runs the pie contest and auction every year and dad helps set up the parade and booths. This was the first year, though, that the boys really got to enjoy the parade and festivities! They had a blast!
